I crawled into Ryan Jensen’s bed that first night by accident.

I barely knew him. I thought it was his sister’s bed—her room. It took seconds to realize my error, and I should've left...

I didn’t.
I didn’t jump out.
I didn’t get embarrassed.
I relaxed.
And that night, in that moment, it was the only thing I craved.

I asked to stay. He let me, and I slept.

The truth? I never wanted to leave his bed. If I could've stayed forever, I would have.
He became my sanctuary.

Because—four hours earlier—my twin sister killed herself.

Angie’s Thoughts:

I’ve tried to write this review 14 times and deleted it. Maybe the 15th time will be the charm. No amount of words will do this book justice but I’m going to try.

Before I even started the first chapter there were tears in my eyes. By the end of Chapter 1 I was gone. Lost. I had to put the book down. I didn’t know if I could move on. I didn’t know if I wanted to. Was I strong enough to endure the pain that Titan was going to put us through? It took me 2 hours to get the courage to pick my kindle back up and move on. I’m so glad I didn’t give up.

There is so much more to Mac then what we think. The first glimpses inside her head are just that glimpses. The more I read the more I loved her. She was fragile yet strong. She was a voice lost in the wind but yet the loudest heard. I hurt for her so much. So, so, so much.

My sweet Ryan. Handsome, strong, popular. I loved him. I loved him and Mac together. She needed him and he needed her. More than what either of them ever knew.

I haven’t read all of Tijan’s books so I can’t say this is my favorite of them all but this is my favorite of all the 6 books I have read by her so far. The details she puts into this book and how well she describes being depressed and suicidal you would think she has been there.

Ryan’s Bed is a heartbreaking addicting book about grief and what happens when love, support, friendships and confronting ghost start healing you. It’s simply remarkable and it’ll forever leave a permanent scar on my heart.

Liezel’s Thoughts:

Ryan’s Bed synopsis is definitely an attention grabber. From that alone, I knew it was going to be a difficult read. In the sense that it would be one heart-wrenching story and it is, it really is.

Seventeen-year-old MacKenzie just couldn’t catch a break. You would think that after her twin sister committed suicide that everything would stop there. I mean, how much can one person take? Yet from then on it was if her entire world was slowly imploding yet with Ryan at her side she took things in stride. She had her moments (who wouldn’t) but her integrity shined through.

Mac’s counterpart Ryan was all too perfect and at first, it was difficult to see what role exactly he would play in this broken girl’s life but in the end, we find that Mac was meant to wake up in Ryan’s bed.  I loved how Tijan made it to where this wasn’t just for Mac’s benefit alone but for both of them.

The emotions that were portrayed in this story felt so genuine. While I thought that there were a few things that were left unanswered I enjoyed Mac and Ryan’s story immensely. If heartfelt books that will make you ponder is your thing choose this book.
